Stadium is owned by a collection of industry leaders including MLBAM, NHL, the PGA TOUR, Time Inc, and Sinclair Broadcasting Group—the largest over-the-air TV owner in the United States.

Now Stadium has rolled out an Android TV app and is opening a new studio in the United Center in Chicago. Stadium plans to create more than 1,000 hours of live, original studio programming from the new space in its first year, in addition to its live and classic games and other programming initiatives.

“As the only national sports network originating from the Midwest, we’re extremely excited with the quality, location, and visibility of our new home,” said Jason Coyle, CEO of Stadium. “The location embeds Stadium in the middle of the action and further reinforces our unique perspective on the national conversation.”

“The United Center is a first-class operation in every conceivable way, and we are honored to be part of it,” Coyle added. “We are grateful to the United Center staff for their professionalism and courtesy displayed throughout this process.”
